DIY Button Necklace

This week my daughter and I hosted a play date and we made button necklaces!
Supplies Needed:
Bakers Twine, Thin Ribbon, or Stretch Magic
Tape (you will need to tape the threading end if you are using twine or ribbon) 

Measure twine/ribbon around your child's wrist and neck 
Make several knots on one end of the twine/ribbon so your buttons don't slip off
Tape the other end to help threading
Start stringing buttons
Once you have the desired amount of buttons bring both ends of the string together and tie in a knot.
Tada! Our sweet neighbor girl modeling her button necklace!

This activity was a lot of fun and was the perfect activity on a rainy day.

I'm also sharing this fun activity today over at The Little Style File
